Petco Wholehearted natural pet food presents Pet Stories. Learn more about the pets and their owners, who’ve chosen Wholehearted Pets for their healthy pet food.
Chris & Bella Burberry (6 years)
I found Bella through a Greyhound rescue. She raced for four years and ran 210 races before she retired. Bella is so sweet and gentle and quickly won my heart.
Ann & Lucy (4 years)
Lucy was the sweet, little runt of her litter, and I loved and cared for her until she could eat. When it’s time to eat, she barks and spins as we go to the kitchen.
Blake & Doty (1.5 years)
I found Doty online, and it was instant love. She was living with her foster family in another city, so I flew there and drove her home. She’s so goofy! I couldn’t love her more.
Bobby, Cassy & Charger (7 months)
We got Charger as our anniversary gift. He’s really obedient, but if we don’t take him with us on every walk, we’ll come home to some damage. It’s a puppy thing, but we love him.
Carlos & Winston (3 months)
I like acting silly with Winston, building secret tunnels and hiding spaces for him. He absolutely loves secret spots. He’s a bundle of energy and can play for hours without rest!
Cassy & Pika (4 years)
Pika loves to snuggle in the nook of my neck and is always game for outdoor adventures. She’s only 4 pounds, and I swear she burns calories begging for food!
Damon & Elsa (1.5 years)
I’d thought for a long time about getting a dog, and then on a whim one day went to the Humane Society. Elsa was waiting there for me. We made eye contact and chose each other.
Cristina & Louis (8 years)
When Louis was a puppy, my family moved to Hawaii, and he was terrified of water! One day, he followed a tennis ball into the waves. Now, the ocean is his happy place.
Darris & Aaron & Zakai (1.5 years)
Zakai means “Ocean,” so it makes sense that he’s a natural stand-up paddler. I’m a dog trainer—mealtime is training time, and training strengthens our bond and makes learning part of our day.
Leah & Sahara (6 years)
Sahara’s always happy; she’s such a little wiggly buns! Loving her gives my kids a new perspective. They see she needs us—and we are responsible for her health and happiness.
Madeline, Lucy (9 years) and Claire
Lucy came into the family as a running partner, and caring for her taught us what it meant to care for someone else. Now, as you can see, she’s our kids’ favorite buddy.
Megan & Sadie (6 months)
I got Sadie to love and help us through a life-changing loss. Sadie’s a fearless puppy, which is what I love about her. She helps my husband and I grow stronger every day.
Nathan & Sarge (6 years)
Sarge is a snuggler: If there’s no room on the couch, he’ll sit and stare at me until I make room! He loves attention on walks and will stop in protest because he wants to meet new people.
Noelle & Croi (1.5 years)
I met Croi when she was 10 weeks old through her foster mom, my coworker. I fell in love. She’s such a good listener, so curious and a great companion on hiking and camping adventures!
Patty & Kaia (2 years)
I got Kaia through a rescue, and at the time, she was people-shy. It’s hard to imagine now. We cuddle every morning, and sometimes I pretend I’m asleep so she’ll give me extra attention.
Ryan & Kaia (2 years)
Kaia loves going to the office, and after a long day of work (and park playtime), she goes straight to her bowl and waits for food. “Breakfast” and “Dinner” are her two favorite words!
Sabrina & Frodo (2 years)
Two winters ago, I had the feeling something was missing—and it was Frodo! My husband and I welcomed him into our family. We spend our weekends at the park playing.
Sydney & Simba (2 years)
Simba loves going on walks and is great on his leash, but he can run really fast. My favorite memories are of us hiking together in the mountains of Big Bear.
